LA FICELLE DE SAINT POURCAIN

Posted on

$25.00

Young, fresh wine with lovely ruby red colour. Fruity on the nose, showing blackcurrant and cherry, with spicy, peppery overtones. Refined, balanced and fleshy, very fruity with good length. The ultimate in really pleasant wines for drinking as an aperitif and with cold and grilled meats, as well as with Mediterranean food. Serve chilled (14°).

Description

30 years ago before the region was even AOC the co-operative of Saint Pourcain ‘borrowed’ the idea from Mouton Rothschild of launching this wine  with a new label each year. In keeping with the approachable nature of this wine it’s always a cartoonist invited to paint the label. La Ficelle means ‘the string’. Story goes that the barkeep would use a knotted string to dip into a patrons flagon to see how much wine they had enjoyed before the bill.

This wine is a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir and a classic ‘Vin de Soif’, to be enjoyed with friends over dinner. Think village Beaujolais with a touch more structure.
